New bylaw button

April 13, 2022

We write to provide you with an update with regard to the above investigation. The writer was retained to investigate potential breaches of the Code of Conduct Bylaw arising from the resignation of Mr. Pattar.

We write to provide you with an update with regard to the above investigation. The writer was retained to investigate potential breaches of the Code of Conduct Bylaw arising from the resignation of Mr. Pattar. 

The Code requires that a complaint be made in writing, and we treated Mr. Pattar's resignation letter as the written complaint. The Code of Conduct Bylaw requires that a written complaint contain sufficient details to allow the affected Councilors to respond. A complaint must also indicate the section or sections of the Code which the complainant believes have been breached. 

The Code allows the investigator to request additional information from the Complainant, and we asked Mr. Pattar for that information. At the same time we advised Councilors Narayan and Johal-Watt that a complaint was received and that further information was being requested. They were also advised that when the information was received it would be sent to them for a written response. 

On April 12, 2022 Mr. Pattar advised the writer, that he decided not to pursue the complaints. Councilors Narayan and Johal-Watt were advised of the same on April 12th. 

The investigation into the potential Code breaches by Councilor Narayan and Councilor Johal­Watt is concluded in a summary way pursuant to section 6.14 of the Code of Conduct Bylaw. It is my finding that the complaint did not meet the requirements under sections 6.8.3 and 6.8.4 of the Code of Conduct Bylaw. These sections are reproduced below in italics.

6.8.3 Identify the name olthe Elected Official who allegedly breached the Code and the nature of the alleged complaint in such a manner as to provide reasonable and probable grounds for the allegation, including the specific sections of the Code of Conduct that were breached and a detailed description of the facts, as they are known to the complainant, that give rise to the allegation; and 

6.8.4 Identify any witnesses of and records relating to the incident.
